Saint Vincent Ferrer

Saint Vincent Ferrer was born at Valencia in Spain in 1350. He joined the Dominican Order and taught theology. As a preacher, he traveled through many regions and instructed many people to observe the true teachings of their faith and to reform their lives. He died at Vannes in France in 1419.

Father, You called Saint Vincent Ferrer to preach the gospel of the last judgment. Through his prayers may we come with joy to meet Your Son in the Kingdom of Heaven, where He lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
